What to eat before a Workout
So many clients and students ask me what the ideal meal is before a workout. Often times, people think having a full stomach will make it harder to workout. However, if there isn’t any fuel in our bodies, we will often get fatigued quickly as we run through our glucose reserve. This can leave people feeling dizzy, light-headed, or nauseated.

Before a workout, you want to eat something that has some protein, fat, and carbohydrates. We don’t want a meal with too much protein or fat because those take longer to digest. This is why you may feel sick after eating and then working out. Keep your protein to 10grams or less.

Here are some suggestions on what you could eat before a workout.
1. ¼ cup of nuts with a fruit
2. 2 tablespoons of a nut butter with a fruit
3. ¾ cup of Greek yogurt with a fruit
4. 2 pieces of toast with 2 tablespoons of nut butter


Really, you just want to eat something that you can digest quickly. That may be something different for each person. You also want to eat as close to your workout as possible to have that energy available during your workout. Usually, 20-30 minutes prior is ideal.

Have fun and be active!
